- Airport hacks: Along with how to skip the long security lines at the LAX Tom Bradley International Terminal and the shortcut to skip the walk through duty free in Sydney’s international terminal, here’s the secret Denver airport security line — crucial intel because of how bad the TSA situation there gets.
- Turtles crawled onto a runway at New York JFK to have sex on Friday, briefly delaying flights (HT: Alan H.)
- TSA doesn’t yet know how it will handle new gender-neutral state-issued IDs that are designed to be REAL ID-compliant
- The TSA often gives passengers a difficult time exercising their rights to photograph at security checkpoints, while photographing and social sharing the contents of their luggage. Here they set off a controversy posting a photo of a passenger with what they referred to as a ‘service duck’.
The traveler assured us there was no “fowl” play afoot and that this was simply her service duck. Our officers at Charleston (CHS) were overheard saying that this duck was pretty chill. Not lame at all… Please contact your airline about their policies on service animals prior to arriving at the airport. It’s good to have all your ducks in a row.
